APM, however, is just one of several important capabilities supported by our Software Intelligence Platform. Dynatrace was purpose built for the full-stack observability needs of modern IT environments, where everything is software-driven, highly dynamic and runs in a complex ecosystem of microservices and containers, distributed across multiple clouds and data centers. With advanced automation and powerful, explainable AI at the core, Dynatrace accelerates innovation, increases team collaboration and efficiency, and delivers better business outcomes.”

The Dynatrace® Software Intelligence Platform includes multiple modules, underpinned by a common data platform. In addition to APM, the platform offers customers AIOps, infrastructure monitoring including metrics and logs, digital business analytics, and digital experience monitoring capabilities.

Dynatrace’s explainable AI engine, Davis®, which is built into the core of the Dynatrace® platform, proactively delivers precise answers to system degradations and performance anomalies. Davis automatically prioritizes these answers based on business impact, allowing BizDevOps teams to respond immediately to what matters most, and enabling them to accelerate digital transformation, simplify operations, and continuously drive better business outcomes.
